Wonder who will be the eventual winners of the streamed TV explosion, what with Apple coming on board too. It already feels like there is too much TV out there, who is able to keep up with it all... We pay for Netflix and Amazon Prime at present, and I feel like we're just about getting value for those two, but no way would I contemplate adding another service on top, it would have to be a case of dropping one before adding another.
I now pay for four streaming services (Netflix, Amazon Prime - more for the quick delivery than what they stream, Crave/HBO and DAZN) which I think is the absolute maximum and I still pay for sports on TV. For two more months anyway as they still have the PL and then it's gone as DAZN over here is great value at $150 for a year.

Soccer - PL (from next season), CL, EL, League Cup, other major European leagues as well smaller leagues.
Rugby - Six Nations, Champions Cup, Pro 14, Challenge Cup
All the NFL games, baseball, some boxing, MMA, Darts, Tennis and just countless stuff I'll never watch of even know it's on such as table tennis and Moto GP.

Now I know it's cheap here because most of the above sports and on at off peak times and were likely picked up pretty cheap to fill out what they provide. But I've gotten used to getting up early on Saturday/Sunday and watching sport while having breakfast and fighting a hangover. Don't have to watch it live either, can avoid the results of any game and there'll be no spoilers on their interface.

If another streaming service that looks worth it comes along like Disney, it'll be one out for it and likely switching back and forth every few months. But I assume they'll all have yearly subs priced cheaper to stop people switching and to hold onto customer numbers.

Disney a safe slip for me too. Had a free go on prime recently, also utter trash. Netflix/now tv are the only games in town streaming wise
Prime is decent especially at the price The Expanse & The Man in the High Castle are excellent. Amazon will continue to pump massive money into content

Ah lad that's nuts. Tbf there are worse vices than owning a bunch of t-shirts that cost a tenner each. Moving gaff was a good way to thin out the wardrobe for me.

Would you wear a new t-shirt (or anything that touches your skin) without washing it first? God knows what filthy factory it came from.

100% of the time. If I have ever washed something without wearing it first it was a mistake.

Probably 1990 I'd say. You didn't get too many comedians coming through Ireland back then I'd guess never mind Belfast.

Died on stage during a gig last night.

Ballsy bastard I remember thinking and riotously funny too.
He was very good.

Kids win this argument hands down with their refusing to leave the shop without wearing what they've just got.
